A vote for Arkansas from Louisiana

ANOTHER GREAT NAME: Barkevious Mingo
  • ANOTHER GREAT NAME: Barkevious Mingo
A sportswriter in my Louisiana hometown risks a lynching by saying he favors an Arkansas win over LSU. His thinking is that it produces utter chaos in the current BCS setup and could lead to more rational football playoffs.

I'm for playoffs, too. But I think UA Athletic Director Jeff Long declared his opposition on Twitter the other day. The haves like the bowl money system better currently. The basketball playoffs don't seem to have hurt the college game.

Whatever else happens, I look forward to another day enjoying the rich gumbo of Louisiana heritage displayed on the backs of Tiger jerseys every year. Candidates this year for addition to my previous all-name Tiger team (there'll never be another Binks Michotta, Hoke Gajon or Gwain Dibetta) are Barkevious Mingo, T-bob Hebert and Jermauria Rasco.
